Agriculture -- Aquaculture -- Population and housing -- Storage and preservation -- Fire -- The heavens, language, and the law -- An Australian agricultural revolution -- Accepting history and creating the future.
Reconsiders the hunter-gatherer tag for precolonial indigenous Australians. Examines evidence indicating they were using domesticated plants, sowing and harvesting, and suggests the hunter-gatherer tag is a convenient lie. Looks at what Australia once was and what it might be in the future.
